4.6L 1995 Thunderbird

Asked by Jul 10, 2016 at 11:41 AM about the 1995 Ford Thunderbird LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Someone hooked and jumped my battery
backwards (I know very dumb) and fried almost
everything. There isn't a fuse able link that I
could find. I replaced the altinator and battery
as well had them both tested not only in a parts
store but a shop. They can't figure out the
problem always saying it's the altinator. I
replaced all fuses all relays and the car still
won't hold a charge. Any ideas?

There is a fusible link, look on the starter solenoid. All modern cars have fusible links to prevent wiring harnesses from burning up when do things like hooking up jumper cables wrong, lol.
